"We had chances but lacked that final touch", added Courtois.
Real Madrid were beaten by Mallorca at San Moix. Marcelo spoke about the team's work after the game: “We lost but we must keep going. It hurts to lose because we played well, but we conceded early on and then looked to make our comeback. but it was not possible. We did not have time to think, they scored a goal and they defended and waited for the counter, that's no excuse though".

"We need to play well until the final whistle. We have won some games while lacking something. We're trying to do everything possible to win but LaLiga is tough these days”.

Vinicius Jr.
“He is 19, and learning a lot. he is playing for Real Madrid, that is a tough challenge and he needs to learn".

Courtois: "We will always fight till the end".

"He is doing well, he lacks a few things, but like myself and Benzema and even other players his age, we should not pressure him, he will get us goals”.
“We need to forget today and look at the positives, we need to play well and look for a win”.

Courtois: “We lacked that final pass”
“We knew about Mallorca. The coach warned us they would come out with grit and real intensity. In the first five or ten minutes, we were caught short. We had chances but lacked that final touch. The goal scorer is right footed and he sent it in at the far post. It is a shame, we should have won here".
“Next we travel to Istanbul and we need to win there. People should not doubt us, we will always fight till the end”.
“We are all fresh back from the international break and have not thought about injuries”.
